The Mostviertel's ski areas score points for their friendly, laid-back atmosphere and frequently receive plaudits for their excellent value for money. The season usually begins in late November/early December and continues well into April.
The Mostviertel is the cradle of alpine skiing in Austria - thanks to the passionate skier and brilliant inventor Mathias Zdarsky, who founded the alpine skiing technique and organised the first ever slalom race in alpine skiing history on the Muckenkogel on March 19th, 1905.
Fun & action
Experts and connoisseurs head for the Hochkar near Göstling and the Gemeindealpe at Mitterbach. The Mostviertel also offers plenty of challenging routes for ski mountaineers.
The sun has got his hat on, there's fresh powder snow and the Mostviertel is a tempting proposition, with its wonderfully sleepy little ski resorts like Lackenhof on the Ötscher and Annaberg. Family friendly, multi-faceted and excellent value for money.
Whether gliding through atmospheric forests or whizzing along on well-prepared circuits: cross-country skiers who want to enjoy the silence of the winter landscape to the full will find plenty of opportunities to do so in the Mostviertel. Guided snowshoeing tours are also on offer.
